the first polls close tomorrow night. at this moment we're awaiting the president at a rally in columbus, ohio, with the boss performing right now. not to be outdone, mitt romney has an event in columbus himself just a few hours from now featuring the marshall tucker band. tough choice there for columbus voters. and if the polls are any indication, america is split down the middle in our new poll. the president just edges romney 48% to 47% among likely voters. well within the margin of error. another look at polls confirms this race is pretty tight. with that in mind, the final day of campaigning is a whirlwind tour. mitt romney is at his second event in virginia today. and he said real change will begin with his victory tomorrow. >> the question of this election comes down to this. do you want four more years of the last four years? or do you want real change? >> virginia of course a state that mitt romney desperately wanted to have locked up months ago. the old dominion very tight. but it is far from the only tossup state and it was at a massive 18,000 strong rally at madison, wisconsi
this hour. hilliard is just outside of columbus. now, frankly county went 59% for obama in 2008. but the gop is putting up a fight here. now, the president has three stops in ohio today. he'll stay here tomorrow in the morning. mitt romney has two, plus the stop in wisconsin. and just by looking at the candidate's itineraries, it tells you b a lot about just how important they think this state is. it's going to be an all-out fight for ohio's 18 electoral votes. it's worth repeating. no republican has ever won the presidency without ohio. just this morning, there was a better than expected jobs report. while the unemployment rate picked up to 7.9%, 171,000 jobs were created. that beats estimates by a strong margin. now, here in ohio, the unemployment rate is lower than the national average. it is 7%. late yesterday, i visited both the romney and obama campaign headquarters in columbus. when i asked people why they're giving their time and what people they're talking to are telling them, the economy is still the central issue in this campaign. >> i think the economy is not doing well and i thi
. pennsylvania hasn't gone republican since 1988. virginia, ohio, colorado, statistical tie. the columbus dace patch has the president up two in ohio and the denver post has him up two in colorado. all three of those are within the margin of error. this is a tight race. i think you get the picture here. the candidates spending the final hours locking up their position on the trails. mitt romney is on to columbus, ohio, capping in new hampshire with special guest kid rock. he ends the day where his 2008 campaign began, in des moines, iowa. the president is leaning on two big names in music to help rally voters today. how about this? bruce springsteen and jay-z will perform joining the president on the trail throughout the midwest. over the weekend in new hampshire, president obama and former president bill clinton appeared together for the first time of the 2012 race. president obama thanking president clinton for his hard work while clinton continued to zero in on mitt romney's record. >> let me just say, president clinton has been traveling all across the country for this campaign. he has bee
vote in franklin county, which is where columbus is and 18 and a half hours in cuyahoga county where cleveland is. this year a total of 16 hours over those three days. fewer hours of early voting is how you get lines that look like this. in places like columbus and cleveland and akron. it's an impediment to voting, and it is on purpose. here's another one not on purpose. "the new york times" reporting in ohio the stronghold of ohio county which includes clevelands had more people vote early every day this year than in 2008, until monday. what happened monday? hurricane sandy. the day of the storm when the daily tally began to lack from the levels of four years ago. so barriers to voting this year are in some cases acts of god. sometimes they are also acts of man. like republican state election officials woshlging to make voting more difficult and less available. in either case, ohio hangs in the balance, as does the election. joining us now is steve kornacky. steve, it's good to see you and sit next to you at this awkward angle. >> very awkward. >> i'll give you the side eye while we
. then it was off to columbus, ohio, where the president was joined by rapper jay-z. >> i told jay-z the other day, our lives are parallel a little bit. nobody, i think, would expect us to be where we are today when they had met us as younger men. both of us now have daughters. both of us have wives who are more popular than we are. >> president obama was having fun on the last day of the campaign. bruce springsteen drove home the point of tomorrow oes hope. >> the american dream, the american reality. our vote tomorrow is the one undenial way we get to determine the distance in that equation. >> president obama delivered his closing message to ohio. the state he's visited more times than any other in 2012. >> we've made real progress, ohio, but the reason why we're here is because we have more work to do. our work is not yet done. as long as there is a single american who wants a job and can't find one, our work is not yet done. as long as there are families anywhere in ohio, anywhere in the country working harder but falling behind, we're not finished. as long as there's a child anywhere in this
of 18 thousands. then he headed to columbus ohio where he spoke before an estimated crowd of over 15,000. within the hour the president will make his final campaign speech of his career as a candidate in des moines, iowa. we will bring that to you live as well as michelle obama's introduction. >> today our businesses have created nearly 5.5 million new jobs. the american auto industry has come roaring back. home values are on the rise because of the service and sacrifice of our brave men and women in uniform. the war in iraq is over. the war in afghanistan is ending. al qaeda is on the path to defeat. osama bin laden is dead. we've made progress these last four years. and you know i will fight for you and your family every single day as hard as i know how. >> and the president presented his vision of the next four years. >> now is the time to keep pushing forward. to educate all our kids. to train all our workers, to create new jobs, rebuild our infrastructure, bring our troops home, restore our democracy, build the middle class, make sure that in this country, no matter who you are,
heavily for mitt romney. what we need to watch on election night is columbus, where franklin county is, because we've been seeing the romney campaign campaign very heavily in central ohio in and around columbus. we're going to see president obama go there on friday. that's the area that could make up the difference come election night. >> okay. james peterson, last thought here. there is a pattern now of real dishonesty on the part of the romney campaign ads. they're out there saying that romney's been accused of outlawing birth control, contraception. nobody's ever accused him of that. they've said that he's not supporting the right of women to have it covered in their health plans. why are they putting out these desperate ads like jeep's going to china and women are under attack for buying birth control pills? i mean, it's an absurdity. who would be so uninformed as to believe these ads? >> well, chris, that's a different question. there are such a thing as uninformed voters and that's fine, that's part of our process. but this is the silly season. you know this, chris. you've studie
? it probably does. we'll go live to the site of the president's event this morning near columbus. there are more than just two guys running for office. house republicans could actually pick up a few seats on tuesday. we'll talk to the gop's man in charge of holding on to the house and the guy who predicted this could happen more than two years ago. november 2, 2012. this is the daily rundown. i'm chuck todd. let's get to my first read of the morning. four days after one of the worst storms ever to hit the country residents are reeling from sandy's impact. according to an early estimate from ploody's analytic the damage will approach $50 billion including property damage and loss of economic aft ty. more than 3.5 home owners and businesses are facing a day without power. the good news the number keeps coming down but there are still millions without power and then new york, staten island where at least 90 people were killed. the situation is particularly grim and residents are still cold, hungry, without power and supplies. they now feel a profound sense of loss and are getting in
to the special flohva panel. adam smith is the political editor, chris booker from our affiliate wcmh in columbus, and larry sabado, editor of the crystal ball blog. larry, let me start with you. the state of virginia, last time it was the closest to the country, the national popular vote. it was the one point off if you will of what obama -- mccain's numbers were to the national numbers were, will it be that way, does the winner of the popular vote win virginia, larry? >> i think virginia is very very, close, chuck. i think you could argue that virginia is one of the two or three closest states in the country right now. it's funny to have a panel of florida, ohio and virginia. florida and ohio are used to this attention. they get it every four years. we used to be the bulgaria of american politics and now we've turned into the paris. or that's how we feel. i would say on the whole, having talked to both sides repeatedly, they both insist that their trackings show their candidate up a point or two. and i have no reason to disbelieve them. that leads me to believe that it's very close. president o
of enthusiasm. i was with the president near columbus, ohio, on thursday. he has tremendous bounce in his step, tremendous confidence of people, all kinds of people were walking up. saw. there were old people, young people, black people, latinos. every time of person that's an american who is coming to that rally. people were bringing their children, taking them out of school because it was such an event. it was very, very moving to see the type of event that attended that event and i think that's the kind of deep-seeded enthusiasm that is going to carry the day in ohio. are the voters, are the residents when you visit them -- do they bring up the automobile fiasco that romney has gotten himself into? frin, this is ohio senator rob portman who was asked about the lies today and here's his response. >> the fact is, we now make jeeps in toledo, ohio, that we're proud to send to china, to asia. if they are going to start production facilities overseas, we're going to lose it here. that's all the ad said. >> what are the folks on the ground -- what are the residents of ohio saying to you? what do
. columbus, ohio, this afternoon. he ends his campaign in des moines, iowa, tonight where he gets joined by the first lady. mitt romney's final day also is about the narrow path he's trying to get to 270. it's florida, then virginia and new hampshire, states he needs along with either ohio and pennsylvania to get to that magic number of 270. the two campaigns both believe the fundamentals are in place for victory. >> for governor romney to win states like ohio, iowa, north carolina, he's going to have to carry election day by a huge mar margin. >> there's an intensity factor on the side of the republicans. there's a significant gap. we see it on the ground. we see it when people are knocking on the doors. >> both men are laying out their closing arguments. the final rallies in 2008 drew crowds of 60,000 and 80,000. last night in aurora, colorado, it was 20,000 supporters who heard the president argue this election is ultimately about character. >> part of a presidential race is about policy. but part of it's about trust. you may be frustrated sometimes by the pace of change. guess what?
in the same city, columbus, ohio. no accident there. kelly o'donnell is in cleavelan. all about ohio, and you can see what's happening on on the ground there, kelly. it's pretty remarkable. >> reporter: well, they're already voting, of course. there were limited hours for early votes in the day until tomorrow's big show. what we've seen are very long lines. we've been told as many as 2500 people were waiting outside before the doors opened. in cleveland about 3700 and in franklin county, which is columbus. there's high energy and interest, and certainly after so many months of being bombarded by tv ads in the various markets in ohio and the phone calls, i was with my mom. i'm from cleveland. the phone was ringing off the hook asking if she had voted yet. people are ready to participate. both campaigns think they have a strong ground game. the obama team touts it has many more offices here and in the early votes more democrats have turned out. republicans believe that they have a real shot at it here because they believe the president's margins as it looks today aren't as great as four years a
other parts of the country. still, though, a columbus dispatch poll shows the state tied within the margin of error. with their voices strained from around the clock campaigning, both candidates spent the eve of the election offering closing arguments across a combined seven key states. governor romney focusing on three that could help him have the easiest path to 270 electoral votes. he ended in manchester, new hampshire, where his campaign launched nearly a year and a half ago. >> this is a special moment for ann and for me because this is where our campaign began. you got this campaign started a year and a half ago at the farm. your primary vote put me on the path to win the republican nomination and tomorrow your votes and your work right here in new hampshire will help me become the next president of the united states. >> the president spent his final hours on the campaign trail in three midwestern states that could deliver him a second term. even without winning florida, virginia or north carolina, the final campaign of his political career, president obama returned to the
. ♪ ♪ ♪ >>> bruce springsteen performing at an obama campaign event last night in columbus, ohio. speaking of the boss in home state of new jersey, officials are making sure that voters can cast their ballots despite the devastation from hurricane sandy. voters whose polling places were flooded were busy filling out forms yesterday to cast provisional ballots. in florida and other key battleground states, there are reports of robo calls incorrectly telling voters they can cast ballots over the telephone. during halftime of monday night football, espn's chris berman interviewed both president obama and governor romney. he asked mr. obama what he's learned about himself and then ask mitt romney what he asked about himself and then to mr. obama, he likened politics to o sports. let's begin with mr. romney. >> this campaign process goes on a couple of years, lots of flights, lots of trips and what i found that surprised me is the more events i did, the more energy i seemed to get. >> in sports, it's about winning championships. interesting, in politics, it's not winning elections. it's making
. >> and take a look at ohio. the president holds a two-point lead according to a "columbus dispatch" poll leading 50%-48%. also, "the denver post" finds the president leading mitt romney, 47%-45%. >> another reason to be disturbed. right now, willie, mitt romney should be ahead in colorado. he should be ahead -- i'm just saying, he should be ahead in colorado, in virginia. he should be ahead in north carolina. he should be ahead in florida. he is according to "the miami herald" poll. virginia and colorado are two states that really give me pause for the romney camp. >> especially virginia. let's pause for a moment and appreciate how close this race is. we just went through about ten polls all either tied or within the margin of error. >> today, 24 hours to go, you can look at the polls. it's okay. >> they matter. >> i would ask you, mark, about ohio. we've sat here for weeks and said this is really going to come down to ohio. that poll was two points. the president has had some polls over the last week that showed him with a bigger lead. where are you hearing this race is right now? >> it
are pushed down to the road and they never materialize. i was in columbus, ohio, during the campaign. there's an amazing guy, the mayor of columbus, a long-term democrat, and he's done a deal on finances. when the crisis hit, he cut as much as he could in the back office, things people didn't see. he hadn't cut enough. sew went to the business community and said i can carry on cutting. i can put police services, park services, things that will actually affect the city of people's desire to live here, or we can have a revenue hike. and because he had already done the cuts in the back office and he could lay them out, the business community 100% supported a revenue hike. it was a really interesting model in one city. okay, it's one city. it's not the country, but it's an interesting model of how you can use cuts. >> i wasn't going to object what you said, i was going tack to what michael said. i don't sense the republicans saying they're flexible on rates. they keep saying we cannot increase marginal rates. we cannot increase marginal rates. donnie repeated the warren buffett point which is a
in the mythical stories that we tell ourselves. they are myths that begin with in 1492, columbus sailed the ocean blue and tell how the pilgrims and indians gave thanks for a bountiful harvest over a turkey dinner but none of the lessons prepare students to deal with the duty which they will be charged with as american adults, how to become responsible citizens. joining my panel is seth andrew, founder and superintendent of democracy prep, public schools. i want to move our conversation a little bit. this close to the election, what i want to talk about as a teacher is not just what's going to happen in this election but what's going to happen going forward. when i was looking at these tests of national civic knowledge, i was completely freaked out. may of 2011, fewer than 5% are demonstrating advanced levels of knowledge. what kind of social studies are we teaching? >> we have a crisis when we think of the actual knowledge of our o our electorate. we have kids that get out of school and they can't determine truth from lies. we have to rethink civic education in america in a dramatic way. we thin

now headed to republican territory in that state. the stop is in lima outside of columbus. his third event of the day in a county that senator john mccain won in 2008 with 60% of the vote. kristen welker is traveling with the president. she joins us now. as i mentioned, lima, 60% of that vote went to john mccain. is the president tailoring his message different than what we heard today, kristen? >> reporter: good afternoon, tamron. i think we will hear a similar message in lima we heard during the president's first two stops today. he's talking about the fact he had improvements and the latest unemployment report to make that argument, but he's really focusing on the auto bailout, the auto industry specifically slamming mitt romney for his recent claims that jeep is shipping jobs to china. the president said the companies themselves have told governor romney to knock it off. it's worth noting that papers in this area have come out and said that those claims are false. the romney campaign continues to stand by their ad that says the auto bailout will lead it to shipping jobs overseas.
ument professional and i trust her judgment. we're not talking about some politician in columbus who wants to suppress the vote, we're talking about a professional cares that every vote is county zbld you're giving us new information here tonight. there are 17 locations. the board has been unable to reach by telephone. the with 14 of those in cleveland. you're saying that that has been remedied has taken place on that? >> it has been remediesed. i talked to director jane plat ten tonight. in cleveland proper itself every single polling location has its electricity restored. we will be ready, ed, on election day. >> the $64 question. is president obama going to win the state of ohio? >> he is going to win, ed. we're going to deliver. they talked about the use of the word "revenge." . but all of us get caught up from time to time. but the president has heart-soul agreement and that is what is going to deliver this election to him. ohioans whether they're working class white males, african-american or hispanic and asian folks we know that he has heart-soul agreement and he has been stan
voters in the crucial battleground states shows a slight edge for president obama. in ohio, a "columbus dispatch" poll has president obama at 50% and mitt romney at 48%. in pennsylvania, a ppp poll has president obama at 52% and mitt romney at 46%. in wisconsin, president obama at 51% and mitt romney at 48%. in iowa, president obama at 47% and mitt romney at 42%. as of this afternoon, nate silver of "the new york times" 538 blog forecasts on november 6, president obama has an 85% chance of re-election and president obama will win 307 electoral votes and mitt romney 231. earlier today, chris matthews sat down for an exclusive with vice president joe biden. >> what do you think is going to happen? >> i think we're going to win. i don't think it's going to be close in the electoral college. i think we're going to win clearly and i think we're going to win this state, ohio. i've been in here 23, 24 days, we're going to win iowa, wisconsin, nevada, new hampshire. i think we've got an even chance of winning virginia and florida. so it could be a big win. don't just vote. bring your mom, your
. in ohio, a columbus dispatch poll has president obama at 50% and mitt romney at 48%. in pennsylvania, a ppp poll has president obama at 52% and mitt romney at 46%. ppp has president obama at 51% and mitt romney at 48% in wisconsin. in iowa, a des moines register poll has president obama at 47% and mitt romney at 42%. as of this afternoon, nate silver of the "new york times" 538 blog forecasts that on november 6 president obama has an 85% chance of winning re-election and that president obama will win 307 electoral college votes and mitt romney will win 231. mitt romney today campaigned in ohio, pennsylvania, virginia, and iowa. his campaign has a sharp new attack line. >> you've probably heard what the president said a couple of days ago. he said you can vote for revenge. for revenge. i'm telling you, you should vote for love of country. >> and ich got to tell you, when the president just the other day said that people should vote out of revenge, this is not who we are. mitt romney and i are asking you to vote out of love of country. >> joe biden also had sharp criticism of his oppon
are they? >> tomorrow there's going to be a battle of the bands, literally, in columbus, ohio, where the obama campaign and the romney campaign will almost run into each other. the president will have bruce spring teen with him. i'll leave it up to the pollsters to figure out who comes ahead this in that one. it is the cross roads of america, the cross roads of the campaign. the president will basically end his campaign in des moines, iowa, in the state that really launched his presidential career. >> is he in good shape in iowa? >> i think the president is in good shape in iowa. in the last 48 hours you are where you go. plopz was in iowa. he's not going back. he's not going back to nevada. he's not going back to iowa. and he's not going to pennsylvania again. which is significant because the obama campaign in the end didn't take the bait on pennsylvania. they are sending bill clinton there, but they are not sending the president there. >> what hasn't bill clinton done for barack obama? >> he was obama's great explainer. he was the obama whisperer in charlotte. and he's been a good
, then back to ohio, this huge battleground state where the columbus dispatch puts the president just two points ahead. so, as you talk about the fact that the obama campaign has done a good job of trying to disqualify mitt romney as a candidate, the american people see him as a viable choice. >> this is a very close election. you can compare it to 2004, no doubt about it, but there is a real force that has been out there for four years against the president. there's been a narrative in the tea party real m, that the economy isn't good. there's a lot of information voters out there, a lot of head shakers that aren't convinced. the dislike of the president is the best thing he's got going for him. the president did win 66 of the vote four years ago. wisconsin has become -- the gop than they expected. >> ryan has failed to deliver positive polling in wisconsin since he's been on the ticket. mitt romney, his campaign has not had any momentum in wisconsin to the point where they had ab ahead in any of the polls. said they were going to vote r for president obama, i don't see the romney campai
, wisconsin, columbus, ohio, freeport, illinois, newton, iowa, denver, colorado, miami, florida, we have been every of where. americans everywhere feel the pulse of this country, we can do better. this is an election about the hard working people that i have e met all over this country. so tomorrow we can take a right turn and go back to the policies that hurt the middle class or continue down the path of progress with president obama. i ask you to do one thing tomorrow. get out and vote. that's "the ed show." the "the rachel maddow show" starts right now. good evening, rachel. >> good evening. i'm look forward to being here with you all tomorrow night. it's going to be great. thanks for staying with us for the next hour. four years ago tonight, it was actually the night after the '08 presidential election. we voted november 4th. we vote november 6th this time. so november 5th was the night after barack obama had just walloped john mccain in that year's presidential election. you remember the electoral college map. the total 365 electoral votes for obama and only 173 for john mccain. barack o

a visit to a columbus, ohio field office. i know everyone in my neighborhood the ones that will vote and don't and what it takes to get them. she added they just shipped in a romney staffer a couple of weeks ago. how do you think is going to win around here? steve, that is the story. yes, and a lot of this you have that quote saying that we didn't see this coming. there was an assumption saying that was showing up in the polls. the republicans were saying what they didn't have was the infrastructure in place to bring that into a reality. part of it is they were bogged down in a primary. and part of it too was that is the nature of relying on the religious groups. and they hoped and sort of out sourced the gotv. >> i'm actually surprised steve, when governor dean became chairman in 2005, karl rove he used this methodology don't you remember the 72 hour strategy, we developed the under pinnings that became what the obama campaign did and one of the things that is so important about the quote that the woman made, to this day the most effective way to get a vote is a person to person con

. >> absolutely. especially those 18 electoral votes in ohio. ed, you're joining us from columbus, give me a check on the mood there. >> well, you know, i think the poll you guys just put out confirms that the president is ahead here, and the fact that the gap appears to be widening ever so slightly, at least in your survey, is telling. i think a lot of this is, you know, the fact that they believe that, you know, he saved the auto industry or at least has campaigned on that. remember you can't make a car in michigan unless you have the parts made in ohio. i think a lot of people here appreciate that realization that the president really and his administration have done what they did. another thing to keep in mind about ohio, i saw this vividly a few weeks ago when i was here, the obama campaign never left ohio. and you talk to their people, you talk to their volunteers on the ground, and they say, we've been doing this now for five years in a sense. almost six years. you go to the cleveland suburbs, there are obama campaign offices just two doors down from where they were four years ago. and the
position. this is where we're seeing the enthusiasm is on the president's side. frankly, i'm in columbus, ohio. and i've been to phone banks. i've been to canvas operations. and there are women everywhere coming out of the woodwork who are volunteering for president, and who are turning out to vote. >> heather, i want to bring you in here. you know, part of the problem that romney has had, he has not tried the say too, too much on anything related to women. but then he appears in ads with people like richard mourdock, and the republican party is filled with these whackos that say the things they do and can't help themselves. bill clinton had plenty to say about richard mourdock yesterday. let's take a listen to what he had to say. >> the nominee who defeated him said he wanted to go to washington to bring more partisanship, that his idea of a happy day was enforcing his opinion on someone else. i don't want and governor romney endorsed the guy. we cannot afford to put the white house and the congress in the hands of people who say it is my way or the highway. >> now he -- clinton is of c
are ours, which showed that barack obama up by six points. new "columbus dispatch" poll out says two. it's still a close race, but looking at the polls, it would still favor barack obama. >> chris jansing, thanks so much for the latest from ohio. up next, the other races that will keep us up late on election night. this is andrea mitchell reports live from democracy plaza on msnbc. if you think running a restaurant is hard, try running four. fortunately we've got ink. it gives us 5x the rewards on our internet, phone charges and cable, plus at office supply stores. rewards we put right back into our business. this is the only thing we've ever wanted to do and ink helps us do it. make your mark with ink from chase. were you profitable last month?hat looks great. how much money is in your checking account? have the browns paid you for their addition yet? your finances are scattered all over the place. mm-hmm. what are your monthly expenses? you keep your receipts in plastic baggies? seriously?

was in dlcolumbus where the early voting center is outside of columbus. it was the same scene. there's only one center in each county. a lot of people want it to vote early. some had to vote early because of work schedules tomorrow, and that's why the lines are so long. tamron. >> thank you very much in cincinnati. greatly appreciate your time. for the candidates themselves, this is it. right now president obama just landed in ohio, the state where you saw those long lines just a second ago, after a morning stop in wisconsin. mitt romney is headed to his second stop in virginia. the president will close out his final day of campaigning in iowa, the state that pushed him into the national spotlight. mitt romney will make his land stand later today in his home away from home, new hampshire. for both men months of campaigning and hand-shaking comes down to these final events tonight. >> you may be frustrated at the pace of change. i promise you, so am i sometimes. you know that i say what i mean and i mean what i say. >> if you're tired of being tired, then i ask you to vote for change. help us wi
in recent years. we have spoken to people in madison, wisconsin, columbus, ohio, freeport, illinois, newton, iowa, denver, colorado,
in columbus, ohio. the labor unions which basically run turnout for the democratic party, we don't have that analog. it is run by the local republican parties so we can't go in and do a lot of on the ground door knocking. we tried it in 2010. it was very difficult because we don't have the store front and we don't have the brand. we did expand the map at the end. it obviously wasn't successful. i just don't know how we could have done it differently. if you look at the exit polls, the way that obama won was on the ground in cleveland with a lot of the minority voters. i just don't know that's a job for super pacs. >> do you feel the same way that super pacs can't do this? they can't be ground efforts because they don't have a brand? >> i don't think that they can be ground efforts. you have to leave that to the campaign. romney failed on that. or the parties. but i will say the republican side suffered in some ways from having too much money. because there were all these groups, crossroads may not have a brand but each group can have one specific message that you keep driving and drivin
and in columbus and in akron and toledo really mad, and that anger caused them to stand in line for hours to be able to cast their vote. >> mr. mayor, i heard it said with a little fine tuning, not only did it make them angry, they weren't that hot on the president to begin with. they liked him they wouldn't feverishly for him until they saw they were being kept out for voting. talk about it. >> you are a republican, michael. tell me about this. i heard exactly what the mayor said. the strategy was go out and find people that haven't been talked to, puerto ricans, get them activated. skip the guy with the gun and go with the person you think is going to be a democrat. get them activated, bring them into system and get them to vote. that's a positive, aggressive system. >> actually, you set the question up and i just want to clarify the record. what you described we did in reverse. we actually did that. that's how we were so successful in 2010. that's how we expanded the base and the reach of the party. >> how did you go it? >> we built a network of coal lathss around the country. we were
of columbus. just north of cincinnati. those are firewall counties for republicans. and if they do well there, that could really give them a slight advantage. democrats on the other hand are working the urban areas and they're also going after small places like mansfield, ohio. lima. little places where there are democratic pockets surrounded by republican areas. that's something they learned from job kerry in iowa in 2004 when he got so focused on a handful of counties, he left a bunch of voters out there in the state. >> anything you're focused on, dave, that would suggest to you that the republicans are right when they say we've got the enthusiasm behind us so we're going to sneak in a win on tuesday? >> these crowds are bigger than the ones john mccain and sarah palin had. look at the rally, the kickoff of romney's closer. the first people i talked to were volunteers from kentucky and tennessee, which is great, they're working and getting the vote out. signs don't vote. you see a lot of romney signs and they're impressive, you see a lot of effort that might be wasted. i spent some time wi
of connecticut. but first, let's go to columbus ohio to talk with lisa hamler fugate, executive director the choi association of food banks. >> thank you for having me. >> we've been following this story all week and we're happy to see the news it's going to be closer to 23 rather than $50 a month. explain to me how that change occurred. >> obviously, the ohio department of job and family services that administers the program along with advocates for the poor and hungry in the state working with united states department of can agriculture were able to resubmit a methodology taking into account propane, which is an unregulated utility in the state of ohio. but again, you're right. beat did have a mild winter but also had an extremely hot summer requiring many with health conditions to run air-conditioners and they're struggling right now to be able to pay those very high electric bills that are past due. >> lisa, your point here is one that i'm not sure that all folks understand how we understand what food insecurity looks like. you know, ever since we started talking about poverty on this poverty
